    This sounds like a great initiative. I hope as many Loudoun dads as possible will participate. Sometimes I worry that folks don’t trust their own parenting skills. They’re so afraid of others influencing their children. But of course it all centers around family & home. Nothing could be more magnificent than bringing another life into the world!

    Color me skeptical of yet more government involvement in the family here in Loudoun County. The government has performed so well in so many other areas of our daily lives, right?

    The government is not a nanny. The government does little well and the government has no real wisdom to pass along to others. Essentially, the government will pay some consultant to indoctrinate the parents with some version of someone’s factoids. These questionable programs will certainly include views that many residents may find objectionable. Why should my tax dollars be used to push someone’s values onto unsuspecting residents who attend the classes?
